Let It Die is a free-to-play hack and slash action game with a survival twist.

Set in post-apocalyptic 2026 when a devastating global tectonic disturbance (Earth Rage) destroys and changes much of the world, Southwestern Tokyo split off into the ocean and became an island covered in fog. A giant spire-like structure pierced through the center of the island creating the twisted battleground known as The Tower of Barbs. Daring players will explore and ascend this mysterious tower, all the while fighting off ghastly enemies and horrific bosses, aided by the Grim Reaper, Uncle Death.

Players start with little more than their undergarments and must forage for powerful weapons and armor to do battle with the over-the-top ultraviolent future that waits.

Let It Die also features deep, multilayered asynchronous multiplayer in the form of "death data," where other players' dead bodies will reanimate into a "Hater", a brutal AI opponent, who will roam other player's games and use every tactic and weapon on hand to stop players in their tracks. If they manage to eliminate a Hater, players are able to loot the Hater for rare items to aid in their ascent up The Tower of Barbs. Players will eventually meet Tetsuo, an unsettling robotic NPC, who gives players the chance to join a team and perform raids on enemy bases to steal much needed resources.

A little more than two years after its release, GungHo Online Entertainment America (GOEA) and Grasshopper Manufacture's free-to-play hack-and-slash hit Let It Die has reached five million downloads worldwide on the PlayStation Store.

To commemorate the five million download mark, Let It Die will be holding a celebratory event, both in and out of game. Details for the event will be available at a later date and fans can stay updated here.

“By crossing the five million downloads milestone, Let It Die joins incredible company on a list of amazing, wildly popular titles,” said Kazuki Morishita, CEO of GungHo Online Entertainment. “The game is as strong as ever with consistent updates improving the experience and we owe it all to our dedicated fans for their continuous support.”

Additionally, Let It Die also has an all-star lineup of voice actors, including Mark Hamill, who lends his voice as the game's narrator, as well as Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars), Verne Troyer (Austin Powers), Steve Blum (Star Wars Rebels) Mark Rolston (Aliens), Laraine Newman (Saturday Night Live) and Tracy Lords (Blade).

Let It Die is available for download from the PlayStation Store and PC (Steam).
